Our Current Math Goals

Our current unit of study is measurement. Our focus for the week is on finding the perimeter of different shapes.

We stress the importance of using the unit of measurement in all answers. Students understand that an answer with just a number is only half right; they must include the unit of measurement.  

We're also spending the first 20 or so minutes of each Math lesson for the next few weeks on intensive EQAO preparation. We also learned a new word: revisit. We're going to revisit lots of previously learned concepts to make sure everyone feels confident and asks any questions that need clearing up.  

We're problem solving, exploring strategies and I'm doing some direct teaching on how students should attack and respond to a variety of problems.
